Yeah, I imagine the only way you would be able to turn up Mr. Lesh (and turn down Donna) would be if you had access to the multi-track recordings.

I don't know how much you know about audio, but every recording you hear on the archive is two tracks (the left and right channel). Even if the show was recording on 8 or 16 tracks, it has to be mixed down to two tracks to be played by current systems.

The video doesn't tell if they are working with a 2-track, commercially available recording, or the multi-track.

I don't think technology is yet good enough to let us boost and cut individual instruments on a commercially recorded CD .
